Illinois motor vehicle accidents: 2 killed in suspected DUI crash

Drinking and driving have left many families in Illinois and across the country feeling broken and incomplete. Unfortunately, police believe that alcohol was a factor in a recent crash that resulted in the loss of two lives, as is frequently the case regarding motor vehicle accidents. The alleged driver in the case now faces multiple charges as a result.

Motor vehicle accidents: 1 killed, 2 injured in Illinois crash

The majority of drivers on Illinois interstates are safe, striving to remain vigilant at all times. Unfortunately, drivers who take their attention from the road for even a brief moment can cause motor vehicle accidents with horrific consequences. For example, a recent crash resulted in the death of one person while two others suffered injuries.

Falling objects can cause motor vehicle accidents, too

When the driver of another vehicle is unable to avoid the object or objects, a serious or deadly collision could result.

One sure thing about motor vehicle accidents is unpredictability

A two-fold meaning exists to that statement. First, no one in Illinois or elsewhere can predict whether a car accident will occur. Sure, conditions might be right for one to happen, but whether it does remains a mystery. Second, there is no way to predict who will survive and who will walk away from many motor vehicle accidents.

Sometimes motor vehicle accidents are caused by avoiding a crash

How often have Illinois motorists been forced to take evasive action in order to avoid a collision? Many times, these drivers manage to avoid being involved in motor vehicle accidents, count their blessings and keep going. Sometimes, however, things to terribly wrong, and even though a driver avoids the first potential accident, he or she ends up in another crash.

Your whole body is vulnerable in a car accident

If you are in a motor vehicle accident, your entire body is subject to potentially very harmful trauma. In high impact crashes, it is not unusual for a victim to suffer broken bones, cuts and other serious injuries. But there are some types of car accident injuries that can be especially devastating.

Comprehending the Consequences of Motor Vehicle Accidents

Illinois has become synonymous with hundreds of catastrophic motor vehicle accidents each year.

In most cases, negligent driving mainly serves as the most common cause of Motor Vehicle Accidents.
